M: Love it! Now I can participate with the kids!
The Great Gatsby (2013) - M Critique
M: Tremendous acting. Gorgeous costumes. Insane set design. Every moment beautifully, albeit self-consciously, choreographed. I am so relieved to say… I loved it. Much truer to the novel, and far better than I expected. Even if the accusations of being overblown were accurate, I still would have enjoyed this. I love the visual and acoustic spectacle that Baz Luhrmann creates —...
AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY- Official Trailer →
Why, hello Awards Season! MLC can’t wait for this one either!
Gravity - Official Teaser Trailer [HD] →
Inside Amy Schumer is awesome
Just canceled my Revolution series recording. Boring, convoluted, and rife with Tracy Spiridakos’ horrid acting.
M: Remind me not to watch Bates Motel right before I go to bed…
Did you know that over 60 people can ride that thing at the same time? And...– Joan Rivers (Fashion Police) re: Courtney Love in a should-be-cute, but grossly see-through dress at Coachella. Confirming my stance that Coachella is so overrun with LA douchebags wearing faux hippie fashion — you’re in the goddamn desert, for god’s sake & being there to be...
What to Watch: 4/15/13
M: Between the awesome new Bates Motel and the “not bad but just not quite doing it” The Following, It’s serial killer night! Desensitize yourself against violence with Norman and Joe. A&E, 10PM EDT, Fox, 9PM EDT And the best news shows on TV (and comedies, except for VEEP) are hosting the best guests tonight: Jimmy Carter, the only President who emerged with his soul...

Truly, great music. But as far as the crowd? Lame.
Money Still Rules and Racism Still Thrives, Even...
M: So I heard that Wesley Snipes was released from jail for further house arrest after serving most of his THREE YEAR SENTENCE for tax evasion Listen, I think it’s messed up not to pay your taxes. We pay less in personal income tax than most civilized countries. Think he tried to dodge it a few times too. Totally wrong. But… But how the hell did Wesley serve almost 3 years in...
What to Watch: 4/7/13
M: Mad Men is back - YAYYY! Trying not to let my expectations get too high, because it’s all about managing expectations… Anyway - still stoked! AMC 9PM EDT Just as good as last week, since Mad Men replaces my beloved Walking Dead (which really ended on a high note, IMHO - referring to writing, not the individual we lost), because Game of Thrones is on! Whoop whoop! I saw a...
What to Watch: 4/6/13
M: I dare you not to be riveted by My Cat from Hell. Jackson Galaxy is a musician and a cat psychologist (is that a thing?). He carries toys and treats in his guitar case. Actually, have picked up a few tips on my apparently fairly reasonable cats. Animal Planet 8PM and 9PM EDT. SNL is back, although I’d hardly say they earned their break. Let’s see if Melissa McCarthy and...
RIP, Roger Ebert
T: (I know, I’ve been away for a while. Things will ramp back up to normal with both M and me posting.) Ebert, along with Gene Siskel, probably did more for movies than any other critics during their heyday. A real loss to the film community.
M Going on Record: Bates Motel is AWESOME
I was a real hater of the very idea of a series based on Psycho. What could possibly be done with Psycho that would be fresh? Even with Vera Farmiga, how could it be worth adding to my list. This show is really good, even if you’ve never seen Psycho (what is wrong with you, btw?). If you have, I think you’ll like the angle(s). Not only does it dig into Norman’s origins; it...
What to Watch: 4/1/13
M: I guess it’s premeditated murder night tonight (since Sunday is “necessary/provoked murder night). Love getting East Coast feeds — while some suffer needlessly through syndicated sitcoms or “entertainment news,” I’ll fire up Bates Motel. The pilot was far better than I expected, partially due to Vera Farmiga’s fantastic acting, but also because it...
What to Watch: 3/31/13
M: FINALLY!!! Game of Thrones is back! I’ll catch the East Coast feed at 6PM. Can.. not… wait… HBO 9PM EDT Walking Dead is up after that (in my DVR queue). I thought last week was great, and I think they’ve really pulled it together. Thank god the “Rick is teetering on the brink” bit is over. It’s over, right? Tonight is the showdown. Somebody...
28 Reasons Why Daryl Dixon Is the Sexiest Man on... →
When Daryl slings a crossbow over his shoulder, the heavens part and a blinding white light of sexual heat appears.
Obama is not Satan. Even Satan was able to make a deal with Congress.– Jeffrey Ross on The Jeselnik Offensive, referring to a Satan that is a dead ringer for Barack Obama on History’s The Bible.
What to Watch: 3/26/13
M: Thank god ABC’s Wednesday line-up is back in originals! T MAY still watch The Middle, but I’ll pass. Skip 8:30 (shudder - terrible). But it gets good at 9: Modern Family is back. Even if it’s been occasionally uneven vs. the first two stellar seasons (and I personally think the Gloria pregnancy is a cheap ploy, just like having romantic tension between 2 characters &...
What to Watch: 3/27/13
Half-heartedly recommend the following (yawn): New Girl is still endearing, but I’m not even sure I’m in love w/Nick any more. Fox, 9PM (yes, T - canceled series recording of The Mindy Project. You told me so.) Cougartown - funny. Not going down in history, but funny. Will I last longer with this than with Scrubs? Not sure. TBS, 10PM EDT Comedy Central (10P-12P) is...
